What you'll do

After a bus trip from the city center of Tromsø, you are greeted by a friendly shieldmaiden at the Tønsvika bus stop. Together we hike 2 km up Tønsvikdalen to Tønsviking Middelaldertun, where our host and chieftain, Jan Reidar, awaits us with hot or cold drinks at the open fireplace. After a guided tour of the buildings, it is time to go all Viking, with training swords and shields! For 30-45 minutes you will learn to fight like a fierce, bloodthirsty Viking berserker, both one on one and as a team, in a shieldwall. You will learn about the weapons of the Vikings as well, and learn about the Vikings`s wiew on war and fighting. Get ready to be active, sweaty and feel like a real, bloodthirsty Viking with us!
